Parent asking to intervene in case over Accountability Act

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY - AL -

 

A Mobile mother is going to court to protect the Alabama Accountability Act.  She says the private school tax credits allow her sixth-grade son to avoid a failing public school.
Tequila Rogers and a Montgomery couple are asking a judge to let them intervene in a lawsuit over the Act.  The suit was filed by the Alabama Education Association.  The parents say they will side with state leaders who support the law.
The Accountability Act provides tax credits of about $3,500 per year for parents who move their child from a failing public school to a participating private school. More than 50 students have used the law to transfer.
Rogers says that credit allows her to afford a school that costs about $4,200 every year.
